When you buy medical insurance for a trip (which Indagare strongly recommends), most plans include medical evacuation to the nearest hospital they deem appropriate. But wouldn’t you rather be the one choosing the hospital yourself—especially if you are on vacation in a country with little infrastructure and the nearest hospital is not always the safest?
MedjetAssist is an emergency medical evacuation membership program that allows travelers to do just that. If a member is hospitalized more than 150 miles from home—virtually anywhere in the world—MedjetAssist reviews his or her condition, both with the attending medical staff and the member’s own physicians, and provides a medically equipped and staffed aircraft to fly them free of charge to the hospital of their choice.
Indagare's founder, Melissa Biggs Bradley, has been a fan of the service ever since she had friends who used it in South America. Unfortunately, she has heard too many stories from people who thought that they were covered on the credit card insurance and only learned later (from additional charges in the hundreds of thousands of dollars) how much it can cost to arrange private medical transport. She would feel very vulnerable traveling without the Medjet safety net. Her feeling: “It’s a small price for something as critical as guaranteeing the best medical care when you are on the road.”
